Sarah Klaper has been appointed the new Ombuds at NIU. Klaper, a local attorney with higher education experience, told the campus newspaper that she promises to maintain the relationships and reputation fostered by her predecessor, Tim Griffin. “All of my past experience in higher education and as a community lawyer lends itself to this position,” she said.
Klaper comes to NIU from DePaul University in Chicago, where she taught in the College of Law since 2006. Prior to that, she was a community lawyer at non-profit, non-partisan community legal organization focusing on access and accountability in local government. She graduated from Ohio University and earned her JD from the University of Cincinnati College Of Law. (NIU Today.)
